/ NEWS: Dog Saved From a Tight Spot
A heartwarming shaggy dog story reached us today, after Llanberis Mountain Rescue Team spent Sunday afternoon poking about down a nasty-looking crevice in aid of a stuck sheepdog. It's more caving than climbing.

Well done that team!
Well done team, Ill stick a tenner in the collection box next time i'm down that way.
Great little tale (tail)! Well done everyone.
I wouldn't have gone down there in a hurry (wouldn't fit, mind you)
A brilliant effort from all involved - so pleased there was a happy ending to the story.
>>> she finally managed to snag the dog's collar with a clipstick
Let's hear it for sport climbers!!
Boo, hiss :)
I think we saw this team as we were heading down the Pass at 10ish on Sunday morning. If so that was a long day!
great video. I'm not normally claustrophobic but think I would get a bit freaked out if I was in the crack for over an hour!
Steak and sausages courtesy of the farmer, team members and a certain local centres kitchen! :-)
For a time it was looking like it wouldn't be a happy ending and all that great footage would go to waste but Kes did an amazing job, first time using a clipstick too! :-)
More agreeable than having your collar snagged by a dog's lipstick.
Ahh! Still a great effort :-)
Whats the tune being played on the video?
They both deserve a medal for agreeing to go down. The very thought gives me the heebie jeebies.

Great Vid :-)
+ Well done for the Rescue.
Very selfless bravery, I imagine she will find it hard buying a drink in the pub for a while :)
Sorry, I missed the climbing there, did anyone else see it?
If you look again, you will see:
Mountain rescue (mountaineering falling within the topic of UKC)
On a mountain (again, mountaineering)
Use of ropes/equipment in ways common in climbing (climbing)
Anchors being used (trad climbing)
A rock face, or rather two very close together (climbing)
Thrutching around to gain progress on rock, albeit in the wrong direction (climbing)
A clipstick! (sport climbing)
See, lots of climbing
Haha! What an awesome video! Does anyone know how the god was found down the hole in the first place?
..sorry I meant dog not god...
Brilliant! Bet the farmer was chuffed. Well done to you guys, must be nice to see a positive outcome...
Superb effort, Kes is a hero.
